Hi,

 

I've inoculated Penis envy (PE) in november.  First time grower.

 

Cakes were ordered from a popular website (I will do mine next time, but for the sake of giving you the most accurate information) 

Spores were ordered from a liable source.

 

Light : I gave them light, didn't go for the total darkness for weeks.  Something around 12/12, or maybe 10 light, 14 darkness.

Temperature : 20 Celsius only for the main part. (68-70 F)  Didn't want to put a heating mat under it for different reasons.

Took them about 8 weeks to fully colonize and then I got some weird looking mycelium. I know that PE can do blobs, but I can't find any solid information about it, especially on cakes.

Smell : When i opened the jar, no smell. After adding some water to get it out more easily, the characteristic mushroom smell came to my nose. Hooray!  Am I ok with my thinking "If it quacks like a duck, walk like a duck but smell Psilocibe mushroom, then it is a mushroom" ?

Dunking : 20-24h each cake

Chamber : made a shotgun chamber with perlite

Blobs : I kept a few, dried it and stored it, waiting for any knowledgeable input ;)  The others are still on the cakes. A few of them overnight became oddly blue... :/ 

As we speak, the weirdest jars and/or incomplete colonization are still waiting patiently. Didn't want to put them in the same SG chamber.

 

I have a few things that remain unclear to me :
1) what can I possibly do with a stalled jar ?   (I know that I should use with mouth mason jars btw, bought some for the next experimentation) ;) 
2) What am I looking at ? Is it PE, could it be something else? What do I do with the blobs? 

3) Do you consider blobs as mycelium or as mushrooms?  I've read that a shocked mycellium can become blue temporarily, but what about a blob getting dark blue overnight? 

More pictures to follow soon (featuring dark blue color that came out.... out of the blue) badummm tssss

 

 

Thanks for your help

Little update for anyone interested AND mainly 2 questions.

1) any concerns about these huge blobs?

2) Got my first "real" mushrooms. First picture : no ring under the cap. Second picture : black ring under the cap.  Does it mean that it's harvesting time? Not sure to understand really well how P.E. "works" to be quite honest.

 

Thanks for your inputs
